Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says Texas Congressman Barton’s remarks supporting BP and raking Obama cause major problems for Republicans.

Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) turned a hearing with BP CEO Tony Hayward on its head Thursday by apologizing to BP for what he called a “$20 billion shakedown.” Democrats made political hay with bone headed move by the Texas Congressman. It later emerged that Barton’s “shakedown” talking point had been crafted by the Republican Study Committee, a conservative faction that includes 115 of the 178 GOP House members. Barton got more than $100,000 in campaign contributions from the oil industry during this election cycle — and his top single corporate contributor is Anadarko, which is a 25% stakeholder in the gushing Macondo well.

Congressman Joe Barton supportors dodge fall out from his support of BP.
